Peer Gynt Vegen

Peer Gynt Vegen

Peer Gynt Road is a narrow scenic road running for 60km from Skei to Espedalen, in the east of Norway in Oppland county.

The road is mostly gravel but in good conditions. It’s only open in the summer, mostly from the 1st of June, and is closed when the snow starts.
The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow. This scenic toll road takes you through the mythical country of Peer Gynt and the trolls. Experience your own fairy tale driving through this beautiful scenery.

This stunning drive was named for the folkloric character Peer Gynt. Climbing up to 1.053m above sea level, it passes the Solbrå Seter farm where Gudbrandsdal cheese was first made in 1863 and an early August concert of Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt finds its spiritual home at Gålåvatn lake.
